30 hours per week £26,507 - £27,343 FTE

Carers Support Centre (CSC) - Bristol and South Gloucestershire delivers a wide range of information, advice and support services for unpaid adult and young carers. More specifically our Young Carers Service provides help and support to children and young people aged 8-18, their families, and professionals working with young carers.

Young carers are children and young people who look after someone in their family who has a disability, a long-term illness, or is affected by mental ill health or substance misuse.

Young carers may look after parents, care for a brother or sister, or another family member. The average age of a young carer is 12 and they take on responsibilities normally only expected of an adult.

We currently have a vacancy in our dynamic, creative and supportive Young Carers team, working to ensure that young carers are identified, have access to appropriate support and fulfil their potential.

The successful candidate will improve the health, well-being and safeguard the interests of Young Carers (YCs) adversely affected by their caring roles for family members in the Bristol area by:

• providing individual tailored 1:1 support, and advocacy
• taking a ‘whole family approach to delivering high-quality, effective and well-managed casework;
• responding to referrals and carrying out statutory assessments
• managing Bristol Key Workers and our Engagement and Activities Coordinator
